The Honeywell BW Solo Single Gas Detector has everything you expect plus additional features to make your compliance easier and more cost-effective than ever. All with a reliable life span, one button operation and a small, lightweight profile. No need to take apart the Solo to replace components. To change out the sensor filters, just pop off a door on the front of the detector, no screwdriver required. Sensor and battery replacement are also easy.

Numerous sensors are available including: hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, chlorine, nitrogen dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, ozone, ethylene oxide, phosphine, nitric oxide and chlorine dioxide.

The Solo features the new 1-Series that delivers fast response, reliable performance and long life, even in extreme environments. The 1-Series sensor has a compact square design, with one third the height of the industry standard sensor. That means a lighter, slimmer detector plus faster sensor response time, because the gas diffuses into it more quickly. No need to worry about sensors wearing out quickly, adding cost and downtime. Instead the 1-series sensors lasts up to 5 years, depending on gas exposure, along with a 3 year warranty. Despite the small size, these sensors delivery consistently accurate readings, standing up to temperature from -40°C to 60°C plus transient pressure, humidity and other environmental extremes.

To optimize safety, compliance and productivity, use Honeywell BW Solo with IntelliDoX docking stations and SafetySuite Software. Simply place the detector in the dock and it automatically transfer the test results and performs the actions you choose. You can to a bump test, change set points, enable calibration and /or bump reminders, update firmware and more.

The Solo is easy to operate even if you are wearing gloves. using this button you can easily configure set points, latching alarms and other parameters. Also access measurements for short term exposure limit (STEL), time weighted average (TWA) and the highest concentration of gas detected in the past 24 hours.

Want to quickly determine whether a detector is in compliance? Just activate Honeywell’s patented IntelliFlash. This flashing green light – visible from a distance means the detectors has been bump tested and is monitoring correctly.

When you pair the Honeywell BW Solo with a smart phone, you can use the Device Configurator app to set up the detector, choose alarm set points and more – all from up to 6 meters away using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Want to check bump and calibration data? Use the app to see the reading from the calibration along with who performed it, when and with what gas and email a certificate to stakeholders.

Don’t have the IntelliDoX docking station? With the wireless version of Honeywell BW Solo, use BLE to share the detector’s gas data with the desktop software – no dock required.

With the Safety Communicator mobile app no need to wait for a detector to be docked before seeing vital data. Instead, pair it with your smartphone and the app instantly sends gas readings and other data to Honeywell’s real time monitoring software. access it from any device with an internet connection  and get remote visibility on worker safety and location.
